Writer’s Workshop Theme Suggestions: Cycle 1, Week 2

Hello everyone, we need your suggestions for this week’s Writer’s Workshop competition theme.

As such, we would like you all to suggest what you think would be good for everyone to focus on writing about. The themes can range from things like ‘Where did the Dwarves come from’ to ‘Summer in Stonehearth’.

They don’t necessarily have to be directly related to Stonehearth however - the important thing is that we decide what to write about together.

That is what this thread is for, so, a few ground rules:

  • Make 1 suggestion. We’ve settled on one as it keeps things fresh, and stops everyone burning out of ideas, plus it keeps things manageable and prevents a load of unseen suggestions.

  • Feel free to post suggestions you have previously posted.

  • Sample entry: “My suggestion is Where did the Dwarves come from

  • Like as many posts as you want in here. That way we can gauge levels of interest for each respective theme/ topic.

  • If you wish to discuss anything in this thread, then please head over here. Any posts in this topic that aren’t suggestions will unfortunately be deleted or moved.

  • Similarly if there are duplicate suggestions we’ll keep the original and delete the subsequent ones, this is only to keep things as tidy as possible.

And with that, thank you all for reading! Suggest your themes here, and feel free to look over the competition rules and discuss the specifics in this thread.

Suggestions will close Wednesday July 17th in preparation for week 2 of the competition.

Have fun!

My suggestion is: What happens when night falls?

This should hopefully give people a large scope of what to write about - as long as it takes place during the night!


My suggestion is: Where did Cthulu come from?/Why is Cthulu here?

I just watched Pacific Rim and thought it was awesome!!! So I thought of this, I just love Cthulu as a Titan and I wondered why has he arrived in the SH universe, Has he come to SH for the same reasons as the monsters in Pacific Rim or is he here for another reason entirely???

My suggestion is: The story of Mer Burlyhands.


thanks everyone! suggestions for this first round are now closed… the winning theme is courtesy of @naturalnuke , who suggested The story of Mer Burlyhands.

so break out your pens and pencils and head over here with your submissions!
